WOW !!! Tom Ryan had me totally captivated with his charming memoir of his life changing experiences with his little dog Atticus. I am hiker who has long abandoned my dreams of completing the NH 4000 footers and someone who always wanted a large dog only to have reluctantly accepted a small “yapper” named Chloe. Now, I am back on the trails again with a newly found enthusiasm and after listening to Tom describe his relationship with his little dog Atticus, I have given little Chloe another chance,I have gotten to know and understand her much better and I have come to love her. Though I really can’t see my dog on the trail with me, I have learned to truly enjoy her. Tom’s book has helped me to look again at many areas of my own life and to see it in such a different light.
I found the book fun to listen to, entertaining and yes …..moving.
Nice job Tom, if you are reading this !!!!
I can't wait for the sequel !!!
I first learned of Bryson when I read A Walk In The Woods and I loved it. Then I first bought the abridged version of this audio book and listened to it at least 8-10 times and obviously loved it. When I saw that I could get the unabridged version I got that one as well This one is even better. I can't say nearly enough about it if you have even the most pedestrian interest in science or history or the folly of human nature THIS IS A MUST HEAR!!!!!
